5 inch gauge Rail Motor - stock code 8176

A 5 inch gauge "Rail Motor" to the Don Young design, this one came to us from the builder, along with his "Marie E" which we sold last year (you may detect the same hand on, indeed same paint in, the paint pot).

This one has a commercially built CE-marked copper boiler, tested with new hydraulic certificate.

The chassis runs on air, better forwards than in reverse.
